Luccarelli wines are crafted the village of Sava, which is a stone’s throw from the town of Manduria - the heart of the Primitivo di Manduria zone. Just down the road is Salice Salentino.
The Salice Salentino region is named for the Salento Peninsula located on the backside of the heel of Italy’s “boot” that extends into the ocean. Salice Salentino is made from the Negroamaro grape, which in Italian means “black bitter.” Dry red wine made from Negroamaro has flavors of ripe plum, baked raspberries, and spice-cabinet notes like anise, allspice and cinnamon. Even though Negroamaro is full bodied it is not too tannic or acidic.
